Abstract: Ectopic pancreatic tissue is most often an incidental finding of imaging, surgery, or autopsy.
Image-guided diagnosis is difficult and definitive diagnosis usually relies on histological analysis. A case of
ectopic pancreatic tissue located near the lesser curvature of the stomach complicated with acute ectopic
pancreatitis is presented followed by a brief discussion of the clinical management of heterotopic pancreas.
